What Car? says...

It’s a bit unfair, really. The Nissan Qashqai gets all the plaudits for kicking off the small SUV craze when Toyota arguably did so more than a decade earlier with the original RAV4.

The modern day RAV4 is a much larger and dumpier beast, however, which is where the Toyota C-HR comes in. It’s roughly the same size as its main rivals, the aforementioned Qashqai and the Seat Ateca. However, it isn’t as roomy in the back as those cars (blame the sleek roofline) and costs a bit more to buy.

More positively, if you’re a company car driver the Hybrid version will keep your tax bills low and even the entry-level Icon model gets you a generous amount of standard equipment.

This is our favourite. That’s partly because the posher trims get quite pricey, but mainly because you get all of the must-haves as standard, including dual-zone climate control, 17in alloys, autom...View trim
